that dividend taxes were going to go up dramatically. even down to the last day of december. you come in, dividend taxes barely go up. i find that, like facebook, which we're going to talk about in a moment, we're not really privy to what's going on. it kind of drives me crazy. we're in a democracy and you're supposed to know. but i do feel that when i look at spain, when i look at france, when i look at germany, i look at the united kingdom they do not get caught up in this kind of wrangling. they are better governed nations right now. >> that's easy to say, i guess, when your comparison seems to be what is a completely dysfunctional congress at this point. jim, how do you go about trying to gauge how to even play this? you look at what happened over the end of the year, the fiscal cliff. and at the end of the day you might take away, well, they did get something done and the markets reacted positively. look at the rally in the first week of the year. do you approach it the same way? it seems to be to a certain extent we're not ignoring it, but at least saying i'm not going to -- >> i d

's not as big as it was. the payroll tax holiday was allowed to expire. the fiscal cliff, this isn't a new tax. it's a return of an old tax but it's playing havoc with domestic stocks. so is all of the partisanship that makes our country seem like a mickey mouse place to invest and uncertainty going forward, every single democratic government on earth seems to be better organized and smoother functioning than ours. that uncertainty caused by that lack of confidence and higher payroll taxes might have something to do with the declines we're seeing. telco was a place to hide back in 2012. at&t and verizon saw slow downs. no let up in the subsidies to apple and samsung, we love these companies because they had no europe last year, no china, no mexico. now we wish they had all three and there was business formation. let's focus on the other half of the equation. it's a little more robust, where the money is going. last night china had one more remarkable session. holy cow, courtesy of new attitude. the gold double digit growth is taking up the fxi. follow along, but it is taking up the ancillary c

debate, it can be far harder to solve than the taxes, we think the market can be down for a while, and before it comes back up. >> so you're looking for a decline, and perhaps that is an entry point for some. do you agree with that? >> i think any decline is an opportunity to buy, maria. i'm very, very bullish on u.s. equities and one of the main reasons i am the u.s. energy story which i think is a story that's not being told as well as it should be. in 2012 the u.s. oil production was up 16%. that was the biggest year over year increase in u.s. oil production since 18 at which just happens to be when we started producing oil so if we think about what's going on. we have right now -- right now we produce oil at 80%, the same price the rest of the world does. we produce natural gas at 25% of the price the rest of the world does. we have cheap energy here in the united states and we feel that will drive manufacturing back to the united states, create jobs, and when all this political stuff is over, that's going to be a big story that we'll talk about ten years from now. >> these ar
a smaller. that is because the payroll tax holiday is over as part of the economic stimulus plan. all americans sought a 2 percent cut in their social security payroll tax was dropped from 6.2 down to 4.2%. that tax cut was not renewed by congress of the tax credit back to where it was in 2010 so expected to 82% last in your take-home pay. >> we have some changes in the forecast here is erica. >> that is right it will get warmer as we transition into the weekend. we really does have to get through this morning because it is a cold start. it will be warmer this after no but let's look at some of the cold spots and the bay area. this entire list includes temperatures in the '20s. about zero is 27 degrees, 28 for vallejo in fairfield. concord 29 and to address will continue to drop because these are not even your morning lows. around sunrise are around 730 this morning freeze warning and frost advisory are in effect from the national weather service. i don't think eyes as much of a factor today because the air is so dry. there's no moisture to talk about. it will be a cold one but i do n
clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the country you have the need to reduce the deficit and continue to grow the economy, energy and climate change, immigration, gun safety. things are stacked up. and so i think that that is going to provide the sort of focus and energy you need and i think his intention is to run through the tape all the way through. >> gun safety has jumped to the top of the president's agenda since newtown and this week the president promised that the weight of his office behind these proposals, but we're already seeing a lot of resistance from democrats and i want to show some of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead
about complexity, in my mind the first thing that comes to mind when i think of the government are taxes. we have a tax code now that is so much more complex. we heard all this talk about simplification last year. we've gone in exactly the opposite direction, putting in all of these deals for special interests and now you're not even sure whether, what your exact rate is depending when you book business. how are you sorting all that out? >> well, it's a challenge. i think about our franchises. most of them are sole proprietors. so their taxes are being passed through the entity that they own. for every dollar that they're paying in additional tax, that is one less dollar they can put back into growing their businesses and creating jobs. we're kind of starving the goose that feeds the golden egg of producing more jobs. david: well, at least you are growing partly as a result of all the complication. people want to go into a franchise. dina owens, from the dwyer group. >> thanks, david. david: appreciate it. lauren: the bank of japan taking a page out of our playbook and announcing it will
not want to do it. he actually does want to negotiate on spending and tax reform. what he does not want to do is have that take place when the republican position on the debt takes the economy hostage. that is off the table. i think the president is smart to be firm and clear on that. next time it would be democrats if we had a republican president. ashley: would you agree, i know it is out of your area, but the senate has not passed a budget in four years now. would you agree with republicans that it is not the way to go and i could, in fact, be breaking the law without i do agree with them. we actually have not passed the budget. i am with them on this concern about our inability to actually do the basic work that a legislature must do. ashley: i know bernanke, timothy geithner, rating agencies and many more states what is the point of a debt ceiling? we routinely raise it anyway. what is the purpose? >> there is no purpose. the debt ceiling has become a device for fiscal irresponsibility. republicans and democrats both dated. senator obama voted against the debt ceiling increase. if
taxes, all kinds of reasons. those people will not buy real estate. that is what happened january 1. let's talk about overall, they talked to me about builder confidence. still have not broken the 50 level. a couple of regions have hit it, the northeast has not, for example. so where is the disconnect? >> you have a demand for multiple family housing. town home garden apartments, that kind of thing demand is there. out somewhere not so commutable, it is not there. cheryl: because you're a real estate agent to the stars coming of high-end luxury clients with multimillion dollar property, is that market strong, will it stay strong, do you think? >> the market is strong due to the overall lack of supply and we have all kinds of people buying in new york. foreigners, investors, users, so much, so many buyers from so many pools, it works. cheryl: thank you very much. if i had an extra $20 million, i would call you. the closing bell is going to ring, exactly 30 minutes to go right now could dell has been the subject of intense chatter of buyouts. the shareholders of little skittish but the bon
that fiscal cliff deal where dividend taxes just went to 20%. a lot of upset and anticipation that it would go higher but 20% is a great number. >> exactly. >> steven hammer, setting some highs of the day right now. you're bullish at least for the short-term here, how much higher do you go? >> i have no doubt in the next six months. we could potentially see anywhere from a 5% to 10% increase in the u.s. stock market, but we need to be cautiously optimistic, and to us it's all about earnings and it's all about volatility which is why we wait based on risk, and investors need to be cautious to where they invest money and they still need to stick with quality. >> okay. hank smith. what's going to take us to these new highs, do you think? >> well, look, i think we've seen in the beginning of this year finally some money coming out of bond mondayfunds going i equity funds. for five years it's been just the opposite so perhaps we're at the very beginning of what could be a very powerful trend providing a ton of fuel to the equity markets, and we agree. look, dividends are still very attractive, as l
't know where we were in taxes, people selling off lots of things, not knowing where capital gains were going to go. now that money is hot. it needs a place to go. people are not thinking interest rates are the place. they are thinking the stock market. they're looking for dividend returns and appreciation. and so far, that is what they are getting. so even on the brakes in the stock market, we are seeing new money flows - big new money flows - coming into the market now. and that will probably continue another week or two. then we'll get back to what i call more normal trading. > commodities traders are on their toes these days, especially with the crop news that has been coming in - we have drought issues, cold issues, and frost issues over in california. what is happening? > > one of the amazing things is, normally when you get a report - we did on friday on final acreage so you can figure out your supplies to a large degree, you often get a limit move one way or the other. they did this report at 11:00 in the session. brand new time. the market did go limit. but i was amazed today,
? >> we like income. the dividend tax rates would go up dramatically in 2013. as the market moves on, take some money off the table, what we found the last three years is if you bought with the s&p is under the moving average, your average gain is 45.3%. if you bought when it was over the moving average, your average gain is 1.5% per year. i still think it'll be a back-and-forth market. take some profits in the euphoria. david: we think about what is happening inside the beltway. it is a global market. it is becoming more of a global market. you see global trade is really taking off in 2013. that leads to tremendous opportunities if it happens, right? >> i think so, david. evaluations are compelling whether it is europe, china. emerging market and even in japan. on the way to unlock the valuations and as investors come around to realizing those risks are receding, you will see a compression of the equity risk premium allowing evaluations to expand. david: lets michelle and she won one of those countries, japan. some people say this new leader going in the opposite direction of the free mar
the cooperation from the political parties who say taxes how much they spend and how much they regulate. by that, it is just not sufficient. we spoke about last night was about the banks, not monetary policy. david: there is a conflict with regards to the fed interest and pump up the market, if you will, and unemployment mandate for the employment mandates you just mentioned. stocks go up and companies lay workers off, that happened with american express and in the past with other companies, so if the intention of the fed is to pump up the stock market, doesn't that sometimes conflict with its mandate to keep unemployment low? >> they're all kinds of approaches to this, david. one of them is the wealth effect, if stocks go up, through the broad pulls the mutual fund or more directly obviously feel wealthier and will be able to spend more and pump of consumption with consumption driven society others might argue it is a narrower base than it used to be, so it is a give and take, pros and cons of every single argument. clearly those publicly traded have been able to capitalize themselves in a bett
story. the end of the federal tax holiday has to hurt retail doesn't it? and the facebook disappointment. you have this mystery announcement coming. instead we have an announcement of a tool to search on big social networks. what a bust. yet the market didn't get hammered and then we got the nap time and the fresh bull came to play into the bell. what is happening here? there have been different time as long the way up where we had this same exact situation like what we are seeing here today. another occurred in the first three years in the '.90s. and every single case, every single one i can recall we get this moment where the market didn't get tired, but the analyst did. many big cap stocks had run up into their price points. and they stayed bullish or they actually even raised price pointed and it was a mistake. and i'll tell you, let's use it, an endless target party. 700 goes to 900 and only if there were a two for one stocks play. the analysts were gun shy. not the cheering, but the support of analysts who might be able to recognize that buzz is good enough. given the litany of eve
taxes up to the level where you fund the promises that we've already made. the entitlements that we've already made and the guarantees we've made, they just want to raise taxes on somebody. i don't know who, to the point where we never actually reform medicare, medicaid or social security. >> the question i want to ask him, is there ever a time that he's making, is it now given where we are in the economy? >> well, the question is, you put in a hundred and you take out 400 in medicare and the government covers 300. >> and it makes no sense. >> well, no, but there are people that think that the government's roll is to provide that 300. and so we should raise taxes to the point where you -- it doesn't matter that you -- >> right. >> it doesn't matter. that is the redistribution. >> that's the agal tearan notion or the equality, the fairness in outcome. >> i'll give it to him. we'll ask the question. >> i just hope you got fired up watching lance. >> i'm fired up watching lance. i'm fired up for that interview. >> i can tell he hurt you. i could tell from when you were over there, you
, as well. melissa: that is so typical of tax. when it comes out, it better be a big deal. shibani, thank you so much. we will stay on top of it. lori: it feels like the developers conference where they create so much hype. then, if it is not a big deal, you are taking a big risk. in the meantime, in washington, the clock is ticking. just a month away from reaching our debt limit. they are considering proposing a delay to president obama's health care law in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. rich edson has the latest. rich: they have been figuring out what they want to propose. perhaps floating a delight in the implementation of the president's health care law. the bulk of the spending starts in 2014. that is just one of them any options they are hoping to discuss. major tax and entitlement reform. that will be discussed throughout the rest of the week. >> we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. there is no such thing in this definition. we'll pay social security, will you pay medicare or would you use it as a tool to try to get the house republi
million r tax adjustment and $376 million from something and $700 million from reduced mortgage loan loss. jamie dimon said challenges still exist but as we look forward to 2013 -- let me finish this thought, we look forward -- we remain optimistic. we're committed to doing our part to speed the recovery of the housing market and we continue to see favorable credit conditions across our wholesale loan portfolios. at first blush. go ahead, andrew. introduce chris. >> chris whalen is here to respond to these numbers. i'm here to say they also put out on their website today. what do you make of these numbers? >> similar to welles making up a lot of earnings numbers with cost cutting, very important. a little light on revenue, i think the story of most banks going into 2013. my guess is interest margins continuing to squeeze because of the fed. >> that's not going to get better. >> the benefit from the fed has gone by on net and tt an alarmi rate and the time's gone >> what's your thoughts on loan growth. >> as jamie said he's trying hard to put on assets, everyone in the industry is. but wit
. so more invasionive in terms of taxes, which clearly is happening. and less alienled on whgned on about it. should government tax harder or should spending be cut harder? not only is there no agreement, but the democrats now are saying, listen, forget the debt ceiling. let's get rid of that silly little thing. but do we actually need a budget? >> so we're learning that we may finally get a budget for the first time in what, three years? significant, though, because these are just templates. >> i great, they are templates. but letting go at a time when the debt is compounding is worrying. however, having said that, you can get worried about that as a market participant, but as long as the federal reserve has open ended quantitative easing, nothing is going to happen from the long end. >> from a market point of view, we were talking about allen capper about this last hour. but from a market point of view, the best outcome is something that lowers the long-term debt outcome. but we keep get ago worsening of the long-term debt profile and a hit to the near term. that is a mix that
reforms, they're talking about tax reforms, as well. this will be a multi layered process and hopefully they'll be in power long enough to deliver some of those changes. i think the market was expecting for the bank of japan to come in .deliver everything that was going to solve all of japan's problems after decades of recession, then they were probably misguided. but for the moment, the reaction we're getting from people who were watching japan is they probably took as many steps as they could today to try and address this decision. >> kaori, stay with us. ed, welcome. you just heard a little bit of the back and forth. what's your own opinion here on what the boj has or hasn't delivered? >> good morning. thanks very much for having me on the show. my opinion is i completely agree with everything kaori said. even more than that, i would say to the viewing audience, look, this is the cramer moment for japan where you bring out the bells and the whistles and you toot the horn and you tweet and you pound the table and you run around the room saying buy, buy, buy. the framework is now in pl
mean, you really think we must be doing terrible. we have higher payroll tax, a gridlock in washington, but the actual job growth is very out of sync, and it almost says like, listen, we got rid of this, let's start hiring. we may be looking at this debt ceiling, and i'm going to invoke shakespeare, the bard, that this may be much ado about nothing. i'm going there. right here. >> right now? the cliff is -- >> don't you love -- you know, when i first heard, i thought what a great title, i said no, moran, take the shakespeare course first the it's going to be claymation death match, maybe ufc, you and i watch that in our spare time -- not -- but i don't think it's as important as getting through the fiscal cliff. people are hiring again. >> dow transports continue to hit six-year highs. >> even as crude is up 95. >> it's like a market that has transport leadership. did you see union pacific? we had mike's southern on "mad money" he says point-blank, the hole has bottomed and is starting to go higher. and be good to the shutdowns, the coal plants. don't forget china has been burning coal
to get through immigration, gun control. he wants to raise taxes probably again. and the challenge on those issues is, those democrats are, the president doesn't have to run for reelection. but they're worried he'll drag their numbers down. >> what about the people going through the 2014 congressional elections, do they look to the president as being someone who will help them fund-raise? do they rely on him for that or do they move past because he's getting into that lame duck status? >> it totally depends on the member and what kind of house district they represent or the state. except for some extreme cases, democrats representing really red states or obviously republicans, usually when offered the help from the president, they say, yes. the money you get from it is really so good. it's the best find of fund-raiser you can have if you're in a tough race. we'll see if he's popular in a few years. if he's not popular coming up to the 2014 elections, i think we'll see a lot of members fund-raise with him maybe halfway across the country. >> we're going to change to debt ceiling now
financing. they are doing a great job. they did not raise taxes. in addition, we have a very business friendly atmosphere. if you come to texas, we will not pull the rug out from under your feet. connell: businesses, sometimes individuals, sometimes larger businesses are leaving state than going to others mostly because of taxes. how much of that juicy and texas in texas and what industries is a really predominate. >> we do not have an income tax. that is a powerful magnet. they do not expect us to go ahead and spend beyond our means. they, in because of the business atmosphere and because we like visitors. a friendly place. the idea of getting to the numbers that you talked about during the first part of the interview and getting through the projections that this particular group put out that this $9 billion gap, specifically, how do you get there sure mark where did the cuts come from? >> i do not know where that number came. there will be a supplemental appropriations bill which we filed in a few weeks. they will fill some of the medicaid that we do not have. it is available in the
and the issues we deal with in the coast and trying to tie that to the tax base and relate that both from a local regional perspective but also a national perspective. when you look at it, 30% of this nation's g.d.p. comes from the gulf coast. you look at the population increase we've had. since 1970, there has been 109% increase in the gulf coast region. the people are there, the vulnerabilities are there but also it is significant to what it provides to the nation. from the states perspective and also from the gulf we recognize that healthy ecosystems also can mean healthy economies. from louisiana, what we have taken -- what we believe is a very good first effort the addressing the vulnerabilities that exist in reducing that risk is with the state's matter of fact plan which is a long- term plan to reduce the economic significance and reduce the risk across the coast. we believe we can achieve protection for all coastal communities. it is that resource that is important. the states provide and the gulf provides to the nation, it if it is going to be afforded through the nation. we believe with
